da da kamera returns

The avant-garde Canadian troupe da da kamera will be back at the Theatre Project on Wednesday with a pre-New York run of its latest show, Cul-de-Sac, written and performed by Daniel MacIvor.

A murder mystery set in a suburban cul-de-sac, the one-man show stars MacIvor in eight roles ranging from an elderly veterinarian to an angst-ridden 13-year-old girl. Next week, two short films by da da kamera, Until I Hear From You and Touch, will be part of the Maryland Film Festival, which begins May 6.

Show times for "Cul-de-Sac" at the Theatre Project, 45 W. Preston St., are 8 p.m. May 5-8 and 3 p.m. May 9. Tickets are $20, except for Wednesday's opening-night benefit for the theater, which is $50 and includes a pre-show dinner and a post-show reception. Call 410-752-8558.
